In order for inhaled asthma medicines to work well, they need to reach the lungs. Attaching a spacer to your prescribed asthma inhaler (or a pediatric spacer to your child’s inhaler) helps the medicine do just that. Using a spacer is recommended for anyone who uses an asthma inhaler.
A spacer is a plastic tube that creates “space” between your mouth and the aerosolized medicine from the inhaler. This allows the medicine to move more easily into the lungs. A valved holding chamber, like InspiraChamber®, is a type of spacer with additional features designed to enhance the delivery of inhaled asthma therapies.
InspiraChamber® Anti-Static Valved Holding Chamber (VHC) is intended to be used by patients who are under the care or treatment of a physician or licensed healthcare professional. The device is intended to be used by these patients to administer aerosolized medication from most pressurized Metered Dose Inhalers (pMDIs). The intended environments are the home, hospitals and clinics.Cautions:
